Flight or fight for Denzel

An airline pilot saves a plane from crashing, but an investigation into the malfunctions reveals something troubling in Flight, released on Friday at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis, his first live action film for nearly 13 years, Flight stars Denzel Washington as pilot William ‘Whip’ Whittaker and he has received an Oscar nomination for the role.

Flight tells the redemption story of ‘Whip’, a commercial airline pilot who pulls off a heroic feat of flying in a damaged plane, saving 98 lives on a flight carrying 106 people.

While the world begs to embrace him as a true American Hero, the everyman struggles with this label as he is forced to hold up to the scrutiny of an investigation that brings into question his behaviour the night before the doomed flight.
